Ralph Lauren to model: Hit the Road Fatty
UPDATE: 10/15 Another incriminating photo exposes Laurens idiocy –more here
Earlier this week, Lauren’s freaky-science-fiction like ad campaign featuring an oddly altered image of model Flippa Hamilton surfaced. BoingBoing said it best stating Hamilton’s “head is bigger than her pelvis (dude).”
Now the model herself has come forward to say she was fired for being “too fat.”
Standing 5’10, weighing 120, she is actually borderline anorexic (and in order to play with the cool kids in the modeling world — that’s not cuttin’ it). Hamilton is angry about the false image of herself created by Lauren & Friends, someone she considered to be “like family” as she stated on the Today Show this morning (mistake #1).
“I was shocked to see that super skinny girl with my face,” she told the Daily News. “It’s very sad, I think, that Ralph Lauren could do something like that.”
4) Lauren is not sorry for this “mistake.” He is irritated — ticked off that his incompetent staff shaved off a few too many inches off the thighs, which made him look like a boob.
He, like the dreaded Uncle Carl himself, are sitting around thinking “its just a bunch of fat mummies that don’t like the close-to-death-look of today’s models.”
5) Am I being crass in this post? Hell yes. Am I exaggerating? You be the judge after looking at the young lives lost on this page.
I am sick, sick, sick of reading the same story over and over and over — then writing about the same story over and over and over –only to discover NOTHING CHANGES. There are times I think we are on the brink of some sort of miniscule change, then we back step.
